We are in Ohio now, lived in Virginia, both no umbrella. We have used a mix of curricula, mainly WinterPromise and Sonlight. We enjoy the methods of Charlotte Mason. My son is a self motivator and I am realizing now that when I back off he does so much more for himself. So I have been a little more relaxed the past year or so. We have been homeschooling since 2005, but I think I will always feel like a newbie.

GA, No we do not use an umbrella school. They  are not required by GA law, therefore they are not even available in our state. Now perhaps you are including private online/correspondence school when you ask about umbrella schools, if that is the case, no we don't use those either.
